We’re Watching

During the holidays, everyone gets hung up on tradition. If one aspect of the dinner table is off on the big day, all hell breaks loose: “I don’t care if you made your own, what do you mean you don’t have the canned cranberry sauce?” “You can’t do vegetable curry as a side dish!” “In this house we only drink Miller High Life on Christmas. It’s the Champagne of beers, you know.” So with Christmas Day dead and gone, something a little avant-garde would definitely suit everyone well. Over at the Safe Room at the Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson Blvd., visual artist Kayla Escobedo will unveil her latest site-specific video installation project, Watch Kayla. The opening party starts at 6 p.m. and runs until 10. Details are light but Escobedo’s background is impressive and a video installation at such a historic theater is definitely not something to miss. Visit thetexastheatre.com for more information.
